Chella Choi, South Korea, and Danielle Kang,USA, share the honor at the top of the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship at Olympia Fields in Chicago.
Chella, bogey free -4 under par 67 today and Danielle with -3 under 68 have -10 under par totals at the top of the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship leaderboard, and will take a two lead into the final round tomorrow.
Chella is playing and putting well;
“I feel very good right now, my shot and my putting, very good the last couple of weeks so I have confidence.”
“You know, it’s a major tournament. It’s very biggest for me, but I’m ready for the final round.”
“I practiced a lot and training a lot, and mental training, too.”
Danielle has yet to win a LPGA Tour event, but has a very good chance to break her duck here, and with a Major too;
“I love the vibe of a major,” it makes you feel so blessed to be out here.”
“But as a tournament, when I step up and hit a shot, it’s the same thing as if I’m on the driving range.”
“I do what I have to do and stick to my routine and play my game.”
On her own in second place is Jiyai Shin, who retired from the LPGA Tour in 2014. She left to return to South Korea after clocking up 11 wins, which included two Majors, and also held the World Number One ranking;
“Maybe I like wind, so I think tomorrow is going to be a little bit hotter and also windy.”
“So I try to enjoy the wind, like a friend.”
Defending champion Brooke Henderson, from Canada, is alone in fourth position at -7 under par, a third round -2 under 69, giving her a chance to retain her title.
